Our scar removal therapies are effective for all kinds of scar tissue and are virtually pain-free. Whether you have acne scaring or post-operative scars, we have the right treatment for you.
Whether you're affected by acne scarring, or you have post-operative scar tissue you'd like to reduce or remove, we have a treatment for you.
Our laser therapies are highly targeted.
If you've experienced acne and now have residual scarring from the flare-ups, or have suffered an injury requiring surgery, you're a candidate for laser therapy.
Scars don't receive melanin, which is responsible for skin pigmentation. As a result, they can burn more easily and suffer UV damage — even more reason to get laser therapy to remove your scar tissue.
Using a patented fractional technology, the Fraxel dual laser safely penetrates superficial skin layers, and stimulates natural collagen growth.
The M-Pen creates tiny punctures, usually less than millimetres, on your skin. This causes a healing reaction in your skin cells, so new collagen and elastin forms.
Combining fractional radiofrequency technology with microneedling, Vivace RF uses heat and incisions to encourage collagen growth and tighten the skin in one painless procedure.
The Vbeam Prima uses two wavelengths of 595 nm and 1064 nm to target blood vessels. It's a non-invasive procedure, with minimal downtime, and it's virtually pain-free.
There will be different preparation instructions depending on the treatment you'll be receiving. In your initial consultation, we'll tell you what needs to be done pre-treatment. For most of our treatments, no matter which technology we use, you'll need to:
Again, it depends on which treatment you receive. But, in most cases, you'll need to wear sunscreen daily. It's important to protect your renewed skin cells from sun damage. If you receive laser therapy, you'll want to use a cold compress immediately after treatment to reduce any potential swelling.
Our scar removal therapies are non-invasive and virtually pain-free. You may feel slightly uncomfortable while receiving a skin needling or laser treatment, but we can apply a topical numbing cream to reduce any uncomfortable sensations. If you're very concerned about pain, we can test a small section of your skin to see how your body reacts prior to treatment.
No. We can reduce the appearance of all scars.
We can treat post-surgical scars as soon as the stitches have been removed, or the scar has fully healed over. Acne scarring can be treated once the acne is under control.
You may experience a small change in the pigment of your skin post-treatment, but this will go away in time. And your skin may be red, and itchy immediately after your session, but you can apply a cold compress, and this will reduce any negative side effects.
Despite taking regular care of her skin, Shani Timms has struggled with acne flare-ups and scarring. She says, "I am a strong believer that diet and lifestyle play a big part in acne maintenance, but something was still missing." After reaching out to our clinic, we formulated a treatment plan for her and, 10 months later, her skin has never been better.
I love the team at VDG. They have helped me with some pesky acne scarring, and improved my overall skin condition. They are an absolute pleasure to deal with and are not only interested in the outcome of their treatments but also their customer's overall experience and happiness.
Vic Dermal Group know skin! They've kept my skin tamed and clear while travelling constantly, I couldn't thank them enough for helping out with my acne scarring from my teens — I've had unbelievable results! Goran and Derya are the best in the business that's for sure.
Went here after doing some research on places in Melbourne that treat acne scarring. It's quite a sensitive issue for myself, and I am always quite embarrassed of my skin without makeup. I walked into VDG and immediately felt calm and relaxed. They are extremely professional, and it's easy to build a rapport with everyone who works there. I highly recommend them.
I visited VDG two months ago for my acne problem. The first visit was complementary, and the staff were very knowledgeable. Within a few minutes of observation, the clinician advised me to follow a treatment plan for a few months, until my scars fade off. I'm super excited to wait until I have an acne-free face.
